Marisa Rendina Education Coordinator Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College, SUNY

Marisa Rendina is serving her sixth year on the NYCMER board with the position of Archivist. Currently, she is the Education Coordinator at the Neuberger Museum of Art on the SUNY Purchase campus.  In this role, she works with docents, adult and school groups on a daily basis to develop curriculum, coordinate museum visits, tours, and events on campus.  She facilitates scholarship programs and implements outreach efforts to area schools. She holds a BFA in Architecture and Art Education with minors in Urban Design and American Studies from Miami University and an MA in Visual Arts Administration from NYU. Since moving to New York, she immediately became involved in NYCMER serving as the intern and has since held positions at The New York Botanical Garden, Gagosian Gallery, the Nightingale-Bamford School, and the New York University Art Department. Her interests lie in youth's access to art education and community-based art practices.

Since 1979, NYCMER has provided a forum for museum education professionals to address issues of museum and educational interest, exchange and disseminate relevant information, and to explore and implement cooperative programming opportunities through roundtable discussions, workshops, and an annual conference.
